The Wall Street Journal connects the increasing number of cyber attacks with the detention in Iran of the American businessman Siamak Namazi, who has Iranian roots. American journalists say that a man by the name of Namazi, "made efforts to strengthen trade and diplomatic relations between Washington and Tehran." Iranian law enforcement officers warned an entrepreneur who resides in the UAE that he did not intervene in the affairs of Iran’s strategic companies and was engaged in "strengthening ties" not unilaterally, but in coordination with Iran. After warning, Namazi was released.
After that, the United States decided to announce the activation of Iranian hackers. At the same time, the United States still denies that the virus, created in 2012 in the secret cyber-labs of the US intelligence services, led to an explosion at one of Iran’s nuclear facilities in January, 2013, and that was then not without American hackers.
